Lexus LF-1 Limitless Threatens Eyeballs in Detroit
Everyone loves a Lexus. Need more? OK, how about the limitless love with the latest concept, claimed to be anything but futuristically aggressive? Dubbed the LF-1 Limitless, the concept may look like an evil Decepticon, burning engine so furiously it could wake the dead. Announced as a future luxury flagship, the full-size crossover is inspired by Japanese swords looking so frackin’ cool.
Designed by a California-based Calty Design Research studio, the four-seater is specifically created to amaze with rear-drive architecture exploring ‘molten katana’ styling cues. The bleeding-edgy concept uses a long hood, a sloping roofline as well as a short front overhang, and boasts exorbitant – 78.2-inch width, 63.2-inch height and 117.1-inch length – proportions. The so-called ‘Chauffeur Mode’, or autonomous-driving capabilities, along with gesture control system on-board and innovative touch haptic panels are included. Other open questions include the powertrain the crossover could be powered – whether it would be pure-electric, hybrid, plug-in hybrid or fuel cell.
This car rocks. Obviously.
